The 52-year-old mega star is joined by castmates Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Courteney Cox, David Schwimmer and Matthew Perry for the unscripted gathering, held on the show's original soundstage, Stage 24, in Burbank, Calif.

The trailer opens with Schwimmer announcing, "The test is ready," in reference to a trivia game setup like the one in "The Test" from the season four episode "The One with the Embryos." The cast members — who brought to life the beloved characters of Joey, Monica, Chandler, Rachel, Phoebe and Ross — then have fun guessing how many pages the letter was that Rachel wrote to Ross and demanded he read before they got back together.

The cast is later seen wandering around the set and sharing laughs as they perform a table read of the classic episode "The One Where Everybody Finds Out," when the friends learn that Monica (Cox) and Chandler (Perry) are dating.

"I remember I went to the producer of the show I was on, and he said, 'That show's not gonna make you a star,'" Aniston says with a smile.

The trailer also reveals that late-night host James Corden will serve as a host for the reunion special, which airs on May 27 on HBO Max.
